Favorite Looks from Days 2 & 3 of NYFW

with one comment

I’ll cut right to chase.  So far it has been all about the whites, sheers and school boy collared shirts.  Could we get any more minimalist? Probably not, but minimalist is one of my favorite styles, so I am pretty satisfied with the spring 2011 collections, so far. Now onto the real business…

Is mixing prints still a trend? Whatever, even if it isn’t, this outfit is simple, comfortable, and chic which are all perfect for resort wear.  The black and white nautical stripes matched with a brown belt is a great way to play around with neutrals.

I have to admit I have a cropped tee obsession so when I came across this cropped chemise, I died.  Chemises are clean but Doo. Ri managed to make them both clean and hip.  Matched with a wide-legged pant, this look is more than perfect.

To me, this Ports 1961 dress is the definition of chic steaming from its modesty.  A little Faye Dunaway maybe? I also love the hair and make-up!

This Costello Tagliapietra dress is impeccably cut and wonderfully flowy.

For a little more edge while remaining to be minimal, this Rag & Bone sheer skirt maxi dress is fabulous.  The color combination of neutrals remind me of my mother, which is a good thing in this case.

With one of the most talked about new designers showing early on in fashion week, picking just one of his looks was not enough.  I narrowed it down to my two favorite looks.  The first being a powerful cream short suit matched with the most stunning feminine black bow-tie blouse.  The second is a beautiful cocktail dress, the one I would most want to own/wear out of the whole collection.

The O.M.G. moment of the 2&3 days came from none other than Christian Siriano.  I can’t say the O.M.G., in this case, implies anything positive.  Honestly, what was he thinking? Why the huge ruffles, almost double the model’s width, in an florescent red that I don’t think even existed before this dress? Even on a model this dress isn’t flattering.  Talk about extravagance!

Beauty: Les Khakis de Chanel for Fashion Night Out

Les Khakis de Chanel

Last Fashion Night Out (FNO) it was Jade and this year it is Les Khakis de Chanel.  Does Chanel really have to make me feel like I missing out any more than I already do?  I am dreaming of being in NYC for FNO and now I am jealous of every girl in the big apple that will get her hands on one of these beyond fabulous nail polishes.  My survival is solely based on the slightest hope that they will be sold internationally a month later and hopefully not exclusively in Paris, which is a rumor I have heard.

The collection, which includes Khaki Brun, Khaki Rose, and Khaki Vert, is dead-on fall 2010.  With a monochromatic fall season, what better than a monochromatic nail polish collection by the beyond amazing Chanel.  Thanks to Peter Phillips, creative make-up director, we have a fall beauty obsession!

Everyone has picked a favorite shade, as for me, I want them all! BE INSPIRED.

Looking of the Week: Ravishing Rossdales

There is nothing I love more than a stylish pair.  The Rossdales are one of Hollywood’s most stylish couples that also have one of the most stylish kids in town, Kingston.  The duo look like the epitome of old Hollywood glam on their way to a wedding on a yacht in California.  

Gwen, the designer behind L.A.M.B, looks absolutely stunning in a polka dot 1950’s siren dress accessorized with a fringed bag, black Louboutin pumps, and a beige fringed shawl.  Her hair and make-up match the look perfectly.  Could you get more of a WOW factor?  

Gavin is rockin’ a beige suit, white shirt and white sneakers. What a clean-cut rocker.  BE INSPIRED.

Les Pop-Up de Chanel

Sigh, Chanel is at it again.  Last fall they wowed the beauty world with the most fabulous color Jade and now that the summer is almost here, u can’t expect any less than ‘Les Pop-Up de Chanel”.  Peter Phillips creates a vibrant collection of make-up from bronzers, lip gloss, to the infamous Chanel nail lacquers.  I won’t talk about anything but les vernis as they are the most exciting.

The Nouvelle Vague looks similar to the Jade but springy, more like an easter egg turquoise.  While I appreciate the fall shade, Jade, and this spring’s Nouvelle Vague, I tend to wear more natural colors.  But for those that take risks, trust me this color will POP.  This collection make me dream of a trip to the beach.  I can picture tanning on the white sand with my white and purple embellished bikini wearing none other than Riviera.  While, on the other hand, Mistral reminds me of a more of a fun summer color yet still appropriate for the office.

They won’t be out for another month, but trust me as soon as they are, I would make sure I’d get my hands on one of those.  Maybe all three!
